some of my plant leaves are developing yellow edges and some have brown crispy tips. This is happening on upper 1/3 of plant mostly and appears to be on secondary leaf growth, not new.

(They are 3 weeks into flower) . The leaves are also curling inward slightly and feel dry and brittle.  The plant itself is lighter green than the others. This is happening only on my Chem Dawg OG and Amnesia plants. I  did find a branch that appeared to be dying and leaves were very stunted.  YIKES.  This is affecting 10 plants only.

No, haven't tried epson salts but will. Using fish emulsion and bone meal during early flower and now blood meal.  Its all at the top 1/3 which is worrisome. Were your edges yellow near the top of plant and stunted growth? How soon between doses with the Epsom? Thank you for helping

Epsom only 1 teaspoon per gallon and I have only used 2 times in whole growth. Make sure to stir in well. My yellowing was on lower leaves and new growth was v light green

When you said yellow edges some with brown crispy tips first impression might be nute burn but in a later post you said some of the new veg growth is coming out a light green is usualy a sign of nitrogen deficiency. That's why whenever one has a problem posting pics can really help speed things up. In flowering its normal for older fan leaves and leaves closer to the main stalk to start dying off but you don't want to many dying off to early or to fast. Sometimes in flowering plants need a little nitrogen boost. I got a few plants that are well into flowering that I`m gonna give them a feeding of veg nutes. Their looking a light green a little to soon. There about half way through but should still be a darker green then a light green. You don't want to much nitrogen in flowering but not to little either.

the reason I would not suggest N is because it is happening at the top of the plant not the bottom. 

 

Brown crispy leaves are either too much nutes or not enough cal/mag/phos. Look for some purpling fan leave stems and purple striping on the main stalk, these are late signs of cal/mag/P def.

Ah I missed the part where he said it was at the top of the plant. Just remembered that fish emulsions is low on the P&K. I used that Alaska stuff about 4 or 5 summers ago and remember that I used to supplement it with extra P&K. I also used molasses with it.

Added the photos and I don't think its Nitrogen issue as it is happening on top 1/3 of plant. I've sprayed with epsom solution and I'll trying bumping up the P & K.
